The Facility for Arts Research (FAR), part of Florida State University’s College of Fine Arts, has launched “FAR & Away Conversations,” a four-part virtual series of live-streamed discussions focusing on interactions between artists and thinkers whose careers, passions and artistic interests intersect.
“We, at FAR, wanted to find a way to continue our annual program of visiting artists despite the pandemic,” said FAR Co-director Rob Duarte. “At the same time, we worked to come up with a version of our public events that didn’t just consist of pre-recorded lectures or more Zoom conferences.”
“FAR & Away Conversations” highlights nationally and internationally recognized artists who are accompanied by a guest of their choosing. Both individuals interact with virtual audiences in real-time conversations loosely based on conceptual intersections of their work.
